. get to it. you love each other but get to it. thanks, fred! >>> top of the hour. i'm don lemon. you are in the cnn "newsroom." thank you for joining us. news reported first here on cnn about syria. syria is agreeing to allow u.n. inspectors to the full site suspected of a chemical attack. many people that died were women and children. the syrian government continues to deny its forces used chemical weapons and yet another sign the u.s. is moving closer to involvement in syria, two key members of congressional foreign affairs committees from both sides of the aisle say they expect the united states to strike syria following the reports of chemical weapons attacks. the pentagon has already sent four warships with cruise missiles to the region. meanwhile, rush why's ministry of foreign affairs is warning against jumping to conclusions on chemical weapons before the u.n. investigation is complete. so let me bring in cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence in washington and cnn's frederi frederick pleitgen. when can we expect to see the inspectors at the suspected chemical attack sit

of the country, inside syria. fred pleitgen is on the ground in damascus with the very latest. fred, essentially what is it like to be there with people thinking and believing that a strike is imminent? >> well, i have to tell you, people really do seem to be nervous here. there's a lot of people that we speak to. obviously because we're in the government-controlled part of damascus, many people are sympathetic to the government and they will tell you out front that they have no fear, that god is on their side and that they believe that the regime will fight back. but there are certainly people that we've also been speaking to off camera that say yes, of course they're nervous as to what exactly this will bring. there's people who are buying canned food and dry food thinking that all of this might escalate and things might get worse for them. because one of the things we have to keep in mind is that while there's been a civil war going on, there has been somewhat of a military balance with both sides. and so a will of people here in damascus can actually lead fairly normal lives. now many people

the streets greeting the white cars. they will be working for several more days. fred is monitoring developments and joins us now. what is the latest there tonight, fred? >> reporter: well, the latest is actually a report we're trying to confirm now, anderson, that apparently, some key military instillations, the headquarters of the air force and possibly the army seemed to have drastically cut down the staff and seems as though the syrian military might be moving hardware to different locations. the u.n. ambassador for syria was asked about that today and said he wouldn't comment on it but one thing the media report is saying is apparently some of the artillery cannons were moveed to other places and what we're hearing tonight is it's very, very quiet tonight in damascus. there is a lot less shelling than before. that doesn't confirm or deny the report. there seems to be an erie calm here. >> there is a new twist, the u.n. announced he submitted evidence or claims is evidence from three previous instances where the opposition used chemical weapons. what more do you know about that?

? fred spent the last few days in the syrian capital monitoring developments from beirut, lebanon. fred, bring us up to speed. >> reporter: hi, christine. i left that country an hour and a half ago. you can tell how the rhetoric toned down a lot over the past couple days. a couple days ago they would have said we are going defend ourselves and stand-up to america. now it sounds more subdued. a lot of people are trying to leave the country now. i wouldn't say it's an exodus but for a couple days, we are going try to leave syria and come back when things turn down a little bit. we were out on the streets of the syrian capital to gauge the mood of people. they are nervous. let's have a look at what some people had to say. even with u.s. warships ready to strike off syria's coach, it's certain they used chemical weapons on their people. at first glance, damascus doesn't appear to be on the edge. this man is with the police force and says he's not afraid of u.s. air strikes. this is my country, i believe we are winning. others counting on help from above. this doesn't scare me, she says, i b
